2005 Toyota Matrix XR Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
My wife and I have done a LOT of
research before purchasing this

Their vehicles are just exceptional.
This car is not the fastest on the
road, but it is plenty fast. No other
car on the market offers the
versatility, performance, luxury, and
One word: VERSATILITY. This car will

The tranny seems to shift at awkward
times sometimes. I've only had the
thing for 4 days, so the problem most
likely is me adjusting from my 400HP
Camaro to the Matrix. Maybe I'm just
trying to make it go too fast...
